Comment:
Suffered from extreme agoraphobia and GAD to the point of not leaving home. Once on medication I was relieved and able to slowly go back to "normal" everyday things.

Comment:
I was put on this for my panic disorder. I only took it at the beginning stages, because it is very addictive. I do not recommend taking it everyday, because it is so addictive. It helped me cope with anxiety, but was not a long term solution.

Comment:
I don't take this daily, just when I anticipate a particularly stressful day, in my very stressful job. I take 2.5mg at night to help me sleep and the drug eases me into the next day. This sporadic use works for me, and I've had my 20 pills over a year--just refilled.
